I realized there is a predominance of young people on this site, skewing many of the polls to a very young position. It's hard to quantify it, but there is that highly recognizable mixture of youthful optimism and naivete that makes me wonder if we are have good discussions, or simply getting a snapshot of what the latest social media is selling.
I don't think it's completely negative to see how the next generation might vote for certain issues, but it's not an accurate snapshot of where all of society stands (or will stand).
It's interesting, and the only reason the negative is implied is because of the word "too"... There are "too many", meaning that older views aren't proportionately represented.
Excuse my supporting headline, but I say the more the merrier. More debates, more votes, more views, more topics, what's not to like?
Then there comes the maturity issue, do under fifteen year old have a less mature state of mind resulting in more wasted debates? Hm, well that in itself is debatable, but I'm sure some of you (and I know I do) know grown men and women that are less mature than some toddlers, so lets not stereotype the entire age range, because some of the younger people on this site have more maturity than some of the adults.
Plus, the younger people DO when some debates. Its not like they're loosing all the time, I have seen a fifteen year old beat a thirty year old.
The adults just get mad when they are beaten by the youth (;
Thanks for reading my opinion.

No. People who are under 15 have just as much right to give you their opinion. And personally, I think my opinion is better than most people my age because I agree with older people more than I agree with people my age or people in their twenties. My political views are crazy, yes. Some may say fascist, but I think that everyone has a right to be heard.
